Hello my fellow papercrafting addicts!
I hope you all had a fun weekend and that you’re ready to get your papercrafting on again.
Know why I’m here again, on your screen, in your reader or sittin’ in your inbox?
Yup, it’s that time again – time for another edition of
New to our Papercrafting Inspiration Challenge known as Magazine Mondays?
Please scroll down to the section “What is Magazine Mondays All About?” for more information, then scroll back up and check out this week’s challenge.
And now, this week’s papercrafting inspiration:
Aren’t those flowers beau-ti-ful!
This week’s magazine cover should give us all plenty to be inspired by. There’s the…
- large photo
- color pallette
- fancy text overlaying the picture
- large square bordered by smaller squares
- and even a barcode!
Do you see something else?
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with this week!
And, to sweeten the pot, there will be an extra (non-papercrafting) treat in this week’s prize package!
Ssshhh, it’s a surprise!
Not sure how to use this cover as inspiration? Simply leave a comment (comment link above) and we’ll do our best to assist you.
Thanks for playing along!
This challenge is not just open to cards or scrapbook layouts , but to ALL papercrafted creations! Show us what else you make.
Whether you like to make home decor items, work in your art journal, create “repurposed” projects out of paper products, make cards, enjoy creating scrapbook layouts, or prefer book-binding, quilling or origami, or some other form of papercrafting, it’s all welcome! Love this week’s inspiration for a Project Life or 365 entry or page? Create and enter that!
The ONLY requirement for entering the Magazine Mondays challenge (at this time) is that your entry must be a papercrafting project – it must somehow incorporate paper.
Playing along with this challenge is easy:
- Go create something – any papercraft project – based on this week’s inspiration above
- Come back to this post and leave a comment, including a link to where you’ve posted your creation
- Check back often to see what others have created and posted
- Check the blog Friday afternoon to see if you won!
We’ll be checking the comment section of this blog post daily for comments and links, and we’ll pin all the creations to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board and link to them on our Facebook page at the end of the week so everyone can be inspired. (Note: be sure your creation is not blocked from being pinned if you want it added to our board.)
Then, on Friday morning, we’ll randomly choose one participant from that week’s entries to receive a fun prize!
And, their winning entry will be the cover image for our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board until the next magazine inspiration piece is posted the following Monday, and will forever* live in our Facebook timeline!
*As long as Facebook exists and we have a page!
What is Magazine Mondays All About?
It’s a weekly dose of inspiration courtesy of magazines. We’ll be offering you peaks at their covers, pages, topics, colors and type in hopes of inspiring you to create.
And, most importantly, it’s a chance for you to show off your creations and win fun prizes!

Now we want to become your number-one source of inspiration…more specifically, papercrafting inspiration!
Magazine Mondays – How To Play Along
Each Monday we’ll post a magazine here on our blog and encourage you to use it as inspiration to create something of your very own. Then, we’ll invite you to add a comment on the blog post, including a link to your inspired creation.
We’ll “pin” each week’s magazine – as well as everyone’s creations – to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board to provide even more inspiration for our community.
And, we’ll link to the creations from our Facebook page so everyone following our Facebook timeline will see the creations our community has shared!
And the best part?
One lucky winner (chosen randomly) will receive a prize for participating!
And, the winner will get to see her/his creation on the cover of our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board until the next magazine inspiration is posted!
Play along and Good Luck!
